Actor Dileep Files Fresh Bail Petition In Angamaly Court:- A fresh bail application has been filed before the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Angamaly by Malyalam actor Dileep.
The actor contended that he had already spent over 60 days in judicial custody. Apart from the conspiracy part, the special investigation team (SIT) was yet to come up with any other charges against him. His bail plea was earlier dismissed by the JFM court, after the prosecution strongly opposed it. The bail petition was dismissed by the High Court on two occasions. On Thursday, the superintendent of the Aluva sub-jail appeared before the magistrate and denied any violation of prison rules in permitting visitors to meet Dileep.
In 2011, another accused in the case, Sunil Kumar aka Pulsar Suni was granted bail, in connection with the alleged bid to abduct another actor, by the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in Ernakulum. A bond of `50,000 each with two solvent sureties was asked by the court to Suni to be executed. Suni should surrender his passport and will have to report before the investigation officer whenever required.
